Last week my family and I had the opportunity to visit the Monterey Bay Aquarium!
We had never been and were excited to see what they had to offer!
One of the first things you see when you enter the aquarium
is the huge display of fish and sharks swimming in the kelp forest.
Feeding time is especially fun when you can gather round and watch the divers dig in their bucket
for different kinds of fishy treats and talk about the sea creatures swimming around them.
There were so many exhibits for us to see!
Lots of big and little aquariums filled with all sorts of interesting creatures!
We loved how hands-on everything was too!
Can you see my son's "tentacles" poking out of this coral?
There was one gigantic tank that had the biggest school of fish I had ever seen!
They were mesmerizing to watch as they swam in perfect synchronization,
parting only to let the occasional shark or turtle swim through.
My favorite exhibit was the jellyfish!
There were so many different kinds to see!
We had fun waving our arms in front of the human kaleidoscope
and drawing our own jellyfish to set free in the virtual tank!
Can you find the fish so carefully camouflaged??
These creatures are so beautiful to me!
My kids both loved the hands-on area where they could touch all the sea creatures!
You should definitely stop at the cafeteria and taste the renowned clam chowder!
It has bacon in it! Best I've ever eaten!
Thanks Monterey Bay Aquarium for a wonderful visit!
We look forward to seeing you again!
